We have four runners on Tuesday, with two over the jumps at Market Rasen, where the going is currently soft, good to soft in places, and we also send two to Southwell for their evening all weather meeting, where the Tapeta is considered standard at the time of writing.

At Market Rasen both of our representatives go head to head at, where they will face another four rivals in the 0-100 handicap chase, over two miles and one furlong. Brickadank came as close to winning as he ever as done when going down by just a short head at Newcastle back in April, from a 4lb higher mark than now, which would put him well in the mix again. He was a good fourth on his seasonal return at Sedgefield in October, but on his two starts since he has failed to get competitive. He will be ridden by Robert Dunne who was last on board at this track back in March.

A Cheap Thrill is our other runner in the race, and he will be partnered by the in form Emma Smith-Chaston. Since arriving from Ireland back in the summer, A Cheap Thrill has now run on seven occasions for us, mixing hurdling and chasing. His last three starts have been over the smaller obstacles, and he now reverts back to fences, from an all time low mark of 75.

At Southwell, Sparkle In His Eye who has won five races for us, and seven in total, returns from over four months off the track, when he contests the 0-68 apprentices handicap, over six furlongs at, with Tommie Jakes, whose strike rate stands at 15%, and is having his first ride for the yard, taking the mount. Sparkle In His Eye who will be having his 34th career start, has never run at a trip of less than seven furlongs, so it will be a fact finding mission to see how he reacts at this sprint trip.

Ring Fenced who will be having her 13th career start, is another horse stepping down in trip, as she has never raced over a distance of less than 10 furlongs to date. Ring Fenced whose mark has slipped 13lb since making her yard debut last September, will run over a mile for the first time, when going to post for the 0-85 handicap, at, with her regular rider Aiden Brookes in the saddle.
